Learning Volunteer - Aerospace Bristol

You will assist with the delivery of workshops with a wide range of students, helping them develop their understanding of Bristol’s rich aerospace history and STEM in the real world.

You will aim to inspire students to think about how they could make an impact in the aerospace industry, while helping them with the hands on activities and experiences during the session. You will also be involved with the crucial set up and preparation for the day. Volunteers will be supporting the Learning team in the delivery of educational workshops. Tasks will include but not be restricted to:

  • Arriving before schools for a short briefing on the activities for that day
  • Help with the set-up of the learning rooms
  • Greet students on arrival and brief them on their days activities
  • Aid students during the workshops
  • Reset the learning rooms ready for the next workshops

By supporting the museums objectives you will:

  • Enable people to participate in and learn about Bristol’s aviation history
  • Advance learning, skills and training
  • Conserve Bristol's aerospace heritage through engagement
  • Celebrate Bristol’s aerospace achievements and inspire a new generation

We are looking for people who:

  • Have a passion for STEM and inspiring the next generation
  • Have a willingness to interact with students of all ages and backgrounds
  • Are able to work as part of a team
  • Have a willingness to promote the museum and its activities.
  • Be DBS checked (this will be carried out by the museum if you do not already have a certificate).

Please note no previous experience is required and full training will be provided. Aerospace Bristol museum opened in 2017 and is home to the last Concorde ever built and the last to fly when it returned to its birthplace in 2003. Our vision is an aerospace museum, which inspires, entertains and informs through the understanding of, and engagement with, the stories and collections of Bristol’s aerospace industry – past, present and future. If you have a passion for planes, are enthusiastic about education, are mad for museums or are hoping to gain experience for employment then we want to hear from you.
